Damage CTRL formed at the 2022 SummerSlam premium live event, when Bayley returned from injury to form the group with Dakota Kai and Iyo Sky. According to Dakota Kai, WWE originally had different plans for the group members.

Dakota Kai recently appeared on Getting Over podcast for an interview. The one-half of WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions revealed the original pitch for Damage CTRL that Bayley shared with her.

“When she first mentioned to me a couple of years before it was myself, Candice LeRae and Tegan. Those were the ones that were from the start. And obviously things that happened from then until now, everything change.”

Dakota Kai further stated that the updated version of Damage CTRL was supposed to feature her, Iyo Sky, Kay Lee Ray (aka Alba Fyre) and Raquel Gonzalez (aka Raquel Rodriquez).


Damage CTRL are currently involved in a storyline feud with Candice LeRae and Becky Lynch, who was responsible for Team Bayley’s defeat at WWE Survivor Series WarGames.
